MLS Standings 2012: Rapids Stuck At Last Place In Western Conference

The Colorado Rapids' loss to the Portland Timbers saw them get knocked out by the only team below them in the Western Conference standings. Portland was only two points behind the Rapids at the time, and the loss vaulted the Rapids to the very bottom in the West. Only Toronto FC has fewer points than the Rapids do in Major League Soccer, with Colorado sitting only five points ahead of the Reds.

Fortunately for the Rapids, they'll get a chance for revenge as well as a chance to get back into seventh place in the West when they face the Timbers again for a rematch at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Wednesday.
